"one sees climate change as an urgent problem that threatens our planet. one does not. i want our president to place scientific evidence and risk management above electoral politics." this endorsement criticized mitt romney's leadership on the other hand saying, "in the past mr. romney has also taken sensible positions, but he has reversed course on all of them and is even running against the health care model he signed into law in massachusetts." mike bloomberg criticizes mr. romney specifically for flip-flopping and dropping his previous positions on climate change then says, "this issue is too important. we need determined leadership at the national level." in other words, i don't think we're going to get determined leadership from mitt romney. i think he has taken occasionally attractive positions, but leadership, no. speaking to you from new york city, this storm and its aftermath, this externality to the big election i

is sort of the science of the campaign. the obama campaign has its ground game down to precise numbers, who they have to turn out where, they're spending so much time and money figuring this out. that's science. the romney campaign is passion, energy, they're coming on, their campaign seems a little more excited. part of that's the nature of being a challenger versus an incumbent running a re-election. depending on which city you're in, boston or chicago, you come out with two different -- both make really compelling cases for themselves. the polls are tight enough that either one could be totally not spinning and believing it, but who knows? >> who knows? >> tom brokaw, just final thoughts in the final days of the campaign, how much should the events matter? then you've got the science of the campaign muddled by the storm. >> well, if nothing happens that is unexpected between now and then, the scenario is going to be does the romney wave override the obama ground game and getting out the vote? the romney people have been counting on what happened with reagan, as you know, in 1980. di
impossible, if you're a political science major at any university, to take a course in the federalist papers--or in law school school, for that matter. you'd think law school would be interested in finding out what the founders really thought. but, no, there are no courses in the federalist papers, or at least not many, either in law schools or in political science departments. c-span: why do you think--let--what's--how important were the federalist papers? >> guest: well, i think if you want to understand the political philosophy of the founders, they're very important. i mean, what else do you have to go by? you have to go by the arguments that they proposed for the ratification of the constitution. i mean, this was their explanation of why the constitution should be adopted. you have the debates of the constitutional convention, plus the federalist papers, plus, i guess, the ratification proceedings in the various states. but the federalist papers are so brilliantly written, largely by madison, some by jay, and are full of so much political wisdom that i really feel that as part of a--an

with a real understanding of the science of the health impact, that marijuana is it a substance that is dangerous because it's illegal. it is not illegal on account of being dangerous. because it's not dangerous at all. [applause] it is well known that the impacts of marijuana are dangerous because of the illegal drug trade from marijuana drug prohibition. so the most important thing we can do to get rid of the health problems associated with marijuana is to legalize it. and on day one, on day one a president, if she wanted to, could entrust the d.e.a. to oh, to -- could entrust the d.e.a. to do a really radical thing. that would be to use science in determining what substances will and will not be scheduled. because marijuana is on a president, if she wanted to, could entrust the d.e.a. to oh, to -- could entrust the schedule.

what the record and science say about the but secular course this storm is taking. -- of the particular course the storm is taking. >> what makes every storm unique is a combination of things, the time of year, strength of the structure in magnitude and size. sandy is unique in a number of ways. it is certainly not common for a system to come in at this strength. but if you look back in history, tropical cyclones have come up the east coast many times in the past. the whole east coast is vulnerable to storm surges and hurricanes. look at isabel in 2003 that came in a little bit further south and had all the storm surge. it has taken a different path, going it in a different direction than this one is. every storm is unique. this is not 100 percent unprecedented, but certainly not common to have a system of this magnitude coming from this direction at this time of year, and what makes this nearly unprecedented and very unusual is the transition to oppose best tropical cyclone and all the different hazards you have in one time. >> i think this is the only time i know of with the hurricane

, mitt romney doesn't say a word because in conservative crowds the science of climate change is just too controversial. climate change is something that you can just heckle right on out of the room. it's not connected to floods or fires or devastation we saw this week or the millions of americans left stranded homeless or without power. it's just the republican way. it's just something to laugh off, you know? >>> tonight in our survey, i asked who do you trust to work with the other side? 98% of you said president obama. 2% of you say mitt romney. >>> up next, hurricane sandy forced two major new york city hospitals to evacuate. and the process to get patients out wasn't easy. tonight, we're going to be talking to a hero nurse who worked almost 24 hours straight to save lives. stay tuned. >>> it seems as though it's like a blur because i think this aftermath of the cleanup and looking at what i'm looking at now, which looks like what i'm told would be a war zone. i've never experienced a war. i think i'm in survival mode. >> monday night was probably the most terrifying night of my life,

.i.h., the national science foundation, so i would take issue with the fact that, you know, the republic of texas is making it all on their own. they're getting substantial benefits from federal research and development dollars. which is fine. i don't have any problem with that at all. but to benefit from the oil industry in such a profound way is a unique situation. we don't have that situation every y -- everywhere. but texas does benefit from nasa, from the national science foundation and the national institutes of health. that's helped spur their economy as well. >> congressman, gary on twitter wants me to ask you, why didn't obama stick his neck out for the nonunion workers who lost their peppings in the auto bailout. can you talk that out? >> that's an urban legend. we are working, nart brown and i are working very hard to help the seven or eight splinter unions that didn't end up doing as well as the u.a.w., the iue crferings wa which had contracts essential to the development of the new general motors. but this is not a union-nonunion issue. there were seven or eight different unions that
and science in a lot of ways. it depends on what your likely voter screens are to use a technical term, like how do you define a likely voter? there's a whole other variable. does that help obama? or does it mean that, you know, you have fewer targets of opportunity to bring to the polls on election day? obviously, in 2008, everybody who helped obama, that's why republicans tried to suppress early voting. in many states, they tried to cut it back. they failed in ohio. >> i don't know if you can hear me, but the 2,800 people here in hilliard, ohio region are screaming. the president of the united states has just been splused and is about to take the stage. as we wait for him to get to the microphone, let me ask you, you've been hearing about the sights and the sounds. does that tell us anything? >> i will say that the size of romney's crowds have gone down in the last week and president obama's has gone up. >> i think they're totally irrelevant. it's just about how you deploy resources. >> here he is. >> oh- >> i-o. >> o-h -- >> -- i-o. >> it's good to be back. can everybody give judy a big r
